It's the most wonderful time of the year...and we don't mean the holidays. We mean buyback!
We're on retail, and we're ready to pay up to half the new price on books we need for the Spring 2018 semester. Come on in and get cold hard cash for your books---just be sure not to sell any rental books. All you need are your books and a photo i.d.
If you need to check your book buyback prices before you come in, feel free to give us a call; we'll need the ISBN from the back of the book (it's a 13 digit number just above or just below the barcode, usually starting with 978 or 290). Please bear with us if you call during a busy time, and we'll get to you. Unfortunately, any telephone buyback quote is subject to change on the basis of condition, the number we've bought back since you called, and changing book orders.
We will be on EXTENDED HOURS for the buyback and rental return period will be 9:00am to 7:00pm, Monday through Thursday, and 9:00am to 6:00pm on Friday and Saturday. Our REMOTE BUYACK location will be at the base of College Hill in the Alpha Phi parking lot from Monday, December 11 to Wednesday, December 13, from 9:00am to 4:00pm.
Rental: Fall 2017 Rental Returns are due back at the store by the end of the day on Thursday, December 14. We'll be open until 7:00pm Monday through Thursday, and 9:00am to 6:00pm on Friday and Saturday; we're closed on Sunday. Our Fall 2017 rental policy is here.
We plan to be ready for the Spring 2018 semester around January 2. That means that the floor will be open, all books should be here, and our rental lists and tags will all be ready, aroiund January 2. If you want to come in before that time, we'll be happy to help you---but you may not be able to rent books that early. Spring 2017 textbooks reservations are open, though, and that will help you get a head start.
